FAQ: TBCB does not work on Windows 8

TBCB 2.5 actually works on Windows 8! I just tested it with the Windows 8 Release Preview. But you need to use some tricks:

- when you start it first time, you need to run it as an admin (right click the TBCB shortcut and click on "Run as admin..."). Should only be needed once.

- test the game. If it crashes, try this:

--- after starting TBCB, click on "Options" and uncheck the three sound options (play music, play sound, play crowd noises). On my computer, TBCB crashed with sound activated and worked fine after disabling sound. I know, this is only a work around to make it run somehow, sorry. But it will also show that the problem has something to do with the sound API code which I used for TBCB 2.5.

--- right click on the TBCB shortcut and click on "Properties", then open the "Compatibility" tab. Select "Run in compatibility mode for Windows XP" and try again.

Thanks for giving us a direct answer on this!

I really, truly hate having to use tricks and workarounds to get games to work on each new version of Windows. OK, I understand that I can't expect games I played in Win 98 to still work.

But I hate having to jump through hoops to get things to work on our laptop, which has Win 7.

Our desktop is Win XP, and with my precarious job situation I'm not planning to get a new computer any time soon. I only buy one or two games a year, mainly sports management sims. If the newer ones won't work on XP, then so be it. I'm tired of chasing Microsoft.

Well, as already mentioned above: TBCB works on Win7 and Win8. On some computers you might need to run TBCB "as admin", but that should not be a big problem. All is well, and personally I am grateful that there is MS Windows and that it's being improved over the years

What is the TBCB shortcut? The belt? I right-click on it and get nothing. Admittedly, I'm still in XP (new computer with "7" on it gets here in two weeks).

Andreas, how about Windows 8.1? And what about TBCB 2013? Has anyone tried TBCB 2013 with 8.1? I'd like to know before downloading that I'm not going to have to jump through hoops to get this game to work. Thanks in advance!

Smile 2.5 vs. 2013

Thanks Javier! Can you give me a rough idea as to the differences between 2.5 and 2013? I'd prefer going with something fairly simple rather than something with a lot of bells and whistles that I really don't need. Thanks again!

I had 8.1 and hated it with such passion that I got my brother to remove it from my machine and install Windows 7 in its place. This is one of the big problems with a game like Title Bout that you can play forever. The operating systems change every few years and unless the game advances at least enough to run on the new OS you are screwed. Best thing about the card and dice game was being able to play it as long as you liked. No hard drive crashes to worry about. No new OS to adapt to. This is something game makers need to consider but rarely do. If Paul abandons Title Bout and no one picks it up, it's only a matter of time before tech advances force us to give up what is probably one of the longest living PC games in history.
